Come to Daddy, by Aphex Twin
The video came from nowhere and out came Chris Cunningham's style and visions. The video begins with an old woman walking her dog, which then barks at a TV on the ground until, memorably, a demonic face appears on the screen chanting the lyrics of the song (I want your soul). Suddenly, children everywhere spill out into the vacant lot, all with Aphex Twin's face, to terrorize and destroy. Finally, the face is able to make itself physical, coming out of the TV with the iconic scene where it then screams at the old woman until her hair falls off. The demon then unites with it's children.

That's it for our week honoring Chris Cunningham! Chris, while he has yet to direct a feature film, has continued to make short films which carry on his unique style and vision, including his recent collaboration with Aphex Twin, Rubber Johnny. He was set to adapt a film to Necromancer, but the project is now dead, due to Chris' wishes to no longer make anything that is an adaptation, rather than an original piece. We look forward to what his original works bring!
